Overall I have been disappionted with the standard of the Novotels I stayed in whilst in Italy - this hotel was the first one I stayed at and probably was the most disappionting overall. I have stayed at Novotels in other countries and was very surprised at the standards here. I cannot fault the reception staff as I they were friendly and efficient - they at least were up to the usual standard I have experienced at Novotel.( I have rated the service only average because although reception service was good in other areas service was poor) The room and bathroom were adequate however the entry door kept sticking and was difficult to open. We arrived late afternoon and the restuarant was not open so we had to have a snack meal in the bar - these snacks were expensive and poor quality and took a long time to arrive - there were no other options as there is not much in the local area in the way of cafes/food outlets. The location is a fair way out from Florence itself however the hotel provides a shuttle service - the last return Shuttle is 8 pm so if you wish to have dinner in town you would usually need to get a Taxi - these ranged from about 22 EUR to 32 Euro. Breakfast was absolute chaos each day we stayed with the staff being flustered and somewhat rude ( probably because they were overworked and understaffed). We tried to change our times to aviod this chaos but there was obviously a number of tour groups staying at the hotel as a large number of tables were reserved for them. Although these tables were reserved for certain times the hotel did not seem to have catered for these groups by providing sufficient staff as there was not enough staff to provide sufficent food or utensils for the number that descended on the breakfast room. Each day we were not able to get glasses to put juice or water in and had to ask more than once for these to be provided. The hot food ran out and took up to 30 minutes for more to be brought out. Other items including bread were consumed and not replaced for a long time - usually after you asked more than once. Given that the choices of food available were limited I feel that there should have been more staff to ensure that there was not a long wait for more food to be provided. After my experience with the snack meal and the breakfast I certainly had no desire to try the restaurant for a dinner meal. There were a couple of positives - the hotel swimming pool was really nice and the provision of computers in the foyer was helpful.

I stayed at the Novotel Firenze Nord Aeroporto for 2 nights on the Splendours of Italy Tour. Our check in was swift, with assistance from our tour guide, our luggage took a long time to be delivered to our rooms, they seemed to be a bit shortstaffed. The rooms were large and comfortable. There was a breakfast room for tour groups,which was very busy - we had to wait a while for the buffet to be replenished both mornings. There are gaming consoles for the kids, a ping-pong table and a pool. There is a bus station within walking distance, so it's easy and convenient to travel to the centre of Florence.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool on the lower floors do get quite noisy if there's a lot of activity in the pool area.

Breakfast very poor and unorganized. I was with a tour group and there was not enough seating and workers to handle the big groups coming into this hotel. Skipped our room service Finally around 7pm after calling a 2nd time they brought us towels. We where told its a 3 stars and we don't think it's even 2 stars.
